Hey all, after trying Guinness Draught beer I was wondering what is that thing floating in my beer bottle? Surely some of you beer experts would happen to know, what ever it is, this beer surely is tops and beats any MGD or BUD any time of day.

It's a Widget.
Link Posted: 2/25/2006 9:55:20 AM EDT
it is called a widget and it jets a stream of bubbles into the beer, creating an effect like that of a tap. The cans are much better than the bottles when poured in to a pint glass. Guinness is the best beer in the world.

Yep, sure is a widget. It is filled with nitrogen. Guinness (and many other Irish dry stouts) are carbonated with nitrogen rather than CO2 for that light creamy taste.

Its call "crap" because it's a 'crap beer.'

First time I had it I freaked out. It is indeed a "widget". I believe it's purpose is to provide the "head".

Thats because you need testosterone in order for the proper flavor

You know I was just thinking I guess a Widget is to beer as a Worm is to tequila. Ahh such tasty Widgets.
Link Posted: 2/25/2006 10:12:05 AM EDT
Warning: do not put the cans into a fire barrel. Those widget things blow up real good.

No, I am a bourbon type of guy.

If I have to drink beer of any kind, I only drink a local microbrew, called Terminal Gravity



I like the IPA better, but their ESB is very good. It definately makes Guinness taste like the turd water that it is. Only women with no taste like guinness.

You might as well just buy Pabst blue ribbon, it will save you money, as they are both piss water.

beer is for junior drinkers who need to be slowly introduced into the world of alcohol. if you're a "test the water with your toe" kind of person, beer is right for you. if you are a proponent of training wheels, beer is a good choice.

beer is for those who carry scissors with the points down, follow warning labels on q-tips, prefer automatic transmissions, ingest the US RDA of riboflavin, buy salt substitute, use an electric lawnmower, work out on a bowflex instead of free weights, sing "muskrat love" in the shower, read "people" magazine, and buy designer color toothbrushes.

real men drink liquor.

True, Guinness is nowhere as big and black as American stouts, and certainly can't touch a Russian Imperial Stout, but as an Irish dry stout, its tasty. True, not as good as Beamish or even Murphy's, but its like a gateway beer. Guinness is the beer that led me on the path to enlightenment through microbrews. I now homebrew some wicked stouts myself. Oh yeah, and IPAs also kick ass.
Link Posted: 2/25/2006 11:54:14 AM EDT
Guinness is delish. Damn good beer. Unfortunately I don't have any in the fridge.
But I do have 9 Shiner Hefeweizen........also very, very good.

IMO the bottles Guinness is the worst, it just isn't right. The can is second best but out of a keg is the best. There is something different about the bottle, and I have a hrad time making black and tans with the bottle. Do yourself a favor and get the cans, don't drink it form the can but pour it into a pint glass.

Word up, home-skillet. Guiness has NO FUCKING TASTE! My god, I can't believe how people go on and on about how great it is. No carbonation to speak of, no bite, no aftertaste, no taste for that matter - like malty, creamy water. Yuck.

Get some Samuel Smiths - any type will do - best beer ever.
